Islamabad: Under the direction of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the Capital Development Authority (CDA), is giving all efforts to begin construction on the long-delayed Bhara Kahu bypass project.
According to sources, the project was given priority by the new CDA chairman, retired Capt Mohammad Usman, who also visited the project site on Friday after a meeting at the Prime Minister’s Office.
It is pertinent to state that the project’s topographic survey is now underway and will be finished in a few days. After that, the engineering design of the bypass will be finished before PC-I is finalised.
It is predicted that all necessary formalities regarding the project will be completed in a week or so. The formal building work is anticipated to begin in the second week of September, according to a CDA official. The official predicted that this project could be finished in four months after it had begun.
The project must be finished within four months, according to the prime minister. Furthermore, according to CDA’s preliminary calculations, the bypass would be five kilometres long, including a one-kilometre elevated road (flyover), with two interchanges at the beginning and close to the end.
It would leave from Murree Road near the Quaid-i-Azam University stop and return to Murree Road near the Jugi stop after travelling through Kayani Road and the Bhara Kahu Friday Bazaar. It will thereafter have a one-kilometre flyover that will conclude at the end of Bhara Kahu.
According to CDA officials, the project’s cost will be decided upon when PC-I is being prepared, and it is estimated that the project will be worth more than five billion rupees. They claimed that the CDA was also investigating if a one-kilometre flyover could be built without any problems and alternatively, the existing roadways could be extended. The CDA will have to seek a new route because the existing roadways don’t appear to have enough room for expansion, according to the officials.
